I've been on this site for a number of years now, and while I've been here I've thought of a couple of "tweaks" that could be put to good use here. I've used these on the forum I administer and they work very well indeed.
- Image Resizing
This plugin loads with a topic and will fit any posted image to a more manageable size, allowing the user to click on the image to bring it up full size. It would stop the common "my images are missing the right hand side" problem

This really does enable the forum to be easier viewed on mobile devices, means less zooming and scrolling. No additional load on servers nor additional programs, simply a bit of code.
- Bot registration protection
As part of the registration procedure, I've included a mandatory profile field only understandable by humans - the question is along the same lines of:
"What is the fifth character in the word "FIESTATURBO"?"
the answer is "T" however a bot won't understand how to fill out this field and won't be able to get past the registration page. We went from 10 spambot signups a day down to 0, and genuine users register fine.
I don't want that to sound bossy or anything, just some changes I'd like to see.
- Sponsored Links
- (not a real person)
Will look into the other two.
